I turned the offer down to complete the review because I'm not a supplement kind of person. For me what works is to have a well-rounded diet and exercise several times a week. Losing weight and getting in shape isn't magic.
However, if someone is struggling with portion control - this might be useful to try out in conjunction with whatever good diet / exercise routine they are trying to foster.

In other news.
My husband bought a wet suit this weekend, to wear in his triathlon that is this coming Sunday. The wet suit belonged to a man that runs the local bike shop and has competed in over 30 triathlons and is currently preparing for his eighth Iron Man in Hawai'i.
He can swim 2 miles, bike 112 miles and run 26.2 miles in 9 hours and 8 minutes.
It would probably take me 9 hours and 8 minutes to do any one of those things.
Charlie wore the wetsuit for the first time in the pool last night and he said that he couldn't believe how much faster he was able to swim. When he got out of the pool, a man who had been swimming in the lane next to him asked if he was a Navy Seal or perhaps in ocean rescue. He went on to tell my husband that they way he cut through water, with his big strong muscles, he looked like a professional athlete.
Now, I'm a very supportive wife but I laughed so hard I pulled a muscle when Charlie told me this story. Probably because to see him tell the story was almost funnier than the story itself. I reminded my husband that he needs to be sure his WEDDING BAND is always visible. Because I think that is a pick up if I've ever heard one. Meanwhile, Charlie thinks the $100.00 it cost for his slightly used wet suit is the best money he's ever spent. Not just because it makes him faster in the water but because it makes him look good.
Sure I can laugh. I've done nothing this week except chortle myself in to a sweat when Charlie told me about his fan club. This most recent virus has wiped me out and once again, I am befuddled as to how viruses serve to build a person's immunity? When the children get sick, I get sick. Even though I was sick as a child. Although, Henry hasn't had this bug, so perhaps whatever immunity I do have - is being leached out in breast milk?
When Charlie dropped the children off at school today (the first time all three have been in over a week), he said that they walked in holding hands and they all hugged and kissed each other before going to class. My husband called to tell me that seeing our children this morning as they departed in to their own separate classrooms, radiating love for each other, was the most magical thing he has ever experienced in his life.
I told him that laying on the floor playing trucks with Henry while two people cleaned our whole house and scrubbed our toilets was the most magical thing I've ever experienced.
